Sheriff: 'Miscommunication' to blame for attempted abduction report.

MACKINAC COUNTY, Mich., (WPBN/WGTU) -- The people wanted for an attempted abduction in Mackinac County have been cleared of any wrong doing.

Mackinac County Sheriff Scott Strait said the two people were found and interviewed after an attempted abduction was reported in Curtis.

According to Strait, English is a second language for one of the people and a miscommunication likely caused the confusion.

The mother told deputies two people asked if her 3-year-old child wanted to see their dog, then grabbed the child and tried to pull the 3-year-old into their vehicle.

The report was sent to the Mackinac County Prosecutor and it was found no crime had been attempted or committed.

Straits said the people don't pose a threat to the public.
